Doors Open Days


As ever, there's a great line up of buildings to visit in Inverclyde on Doors Open Day.

Dutch Gable will be open 10 - 4 Saturday and 10 -3 Sunday, and we have a few wee exclusive treats for you, especially for the weekend.

Magic Torch will be launching their new storybook, 13 Commonwealth Tales, and thanks to National Lottery Celebrate funding, it will be available for FREE over the weekend. The fully illustrated book retells folktales from commonwealth countries featuring all sorts of strange and wonderful creatures.

There will also be an opportunity to see a preview of Magic Torch's new Battle of Largs Exhibition which reinterprets the gothic poetry of Greenock writer John Galt into a series of atmospheric comic art pieces.

Downstairs in the Green Room, we'll have our World War One cafe again, with a chance to pick up a copy of the commemorative newspaper from our Working the War project, which shares Inverclyde news stories from throughout the war. We will also be showing a recording of the popular drama performance created by St Columba's pupils and performed at the Albany earlier this year.

And on Sunday only, artist Alastair Cook will be along to do some of his collodion photography, and if you are very lucky, he may put his Conservation Architect hat on for a moment and tell you a wee bit about the backhouse as well...

We've also been helping out a wee bit with the Tobacco Warehouse open day, and you really don't want to miss that either. So...hopefully see you over the weekend somewhere or other...
